ATTENTION DUNDALK RESIDENTS!! The story below is from the National Volunteer Fire Council. Across the nation, volunteer fire companies are having a difficult time with membership recruitment and retention. Did you know approx 70% of all firehouses across the country are Volunteer? In Baltimore County, we have a full time paid fire department however there are more then 25 volunteer fire companies serving the citizens across all parts of the County at any given time. Volunteer companies help keep YOUR taxes at a more reasonable level, while we do receive some funding from the County, the majority of our funds come from the citizens who live and work in each company's respective area and we receive no salary, compensation or benefits from the County.
Becoming a volunteer takes a lot of dedication but can also lead to a life time of rewards. Some things included with being a volunteer in Baltimore County include:
-Free Fire and EMS training through University of MD
-MD tax credit after 3 years of service
-Monthly LOSAP payments after 25 years of service.
-State of the art firefighting equipment and vehicles
-THE ABILITY TO GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY
We are one of the busiest volunteer companies in the county and getting busier each year. If you think have what it takes and are interested in becoming a volunteer with a fast paced growing organization message us for more information!
We hope to hear from a great number of those who are interested!
We now have an E-Store.
We are very excited to announce the launch of our new WAVFC online shop. You can now get all your favourite WAVFC products delivered direct to your door.
You can buy T-Shirts, Challenge Coins, Decals, and or Patches.

Press Release: Robert Peros Family Outreach
To: All Affected and Interested Parties
From: The Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Company
Subject: Robert Peros Family Outreach
Date: January 25, 2017
The Officers and members of the Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Company wish to extend our most sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who supported and encouraged us during and after the loss of our brother and Probationary Firefighter Robert Peros.
Robert was struck and killed while assisting his father on the side of I-695 on Saturday December 3, 2016. The outpouring of support to us and to Robert’s family in the form of thoughts, prayers, kind words, as well as money and gifts was nothing short of inspiring.
This type of tragic and sudden loss is never easy, but just two weeks before Christmas it could have been even worse. As many of you know, in addition to his own two children, Robert and his wife Ashley were raising four of his nieces and nephews. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of money and gifts from many of our brothers and sisters in the Baltimore County Fire Department family, hundreds of people and businesses in our community, as well as anonymous strangers from far outside our County and State, Ashley was able to handle many stressful and unexpected financial burdens, as well as provide a normal Christmas for her young children.
Everyone who was touched by Robert’s life and death are eternally grateful and truly thankful for your generosity and support. Of course, nothing will ever replace the loss of such a caring, loving, and dedicated husband, father, son, friend, but your kindness reminds us that none of us is carrying the burden by ourselves. That alone gives us comfort and hope.
Thank You and God Bless You,
The Officers and Members of the Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Company
